What Message Does Lindsay Lohan’s Four Hour Jail Stint and Casual Body Language Give to Young People?

The fact that Lindsay Lohan has just been released from a 30 day jail sentence after four and a half hours sends a horrible message to young men and women. It says that you don’t have to be accountable for your actions and that you will get away with it. Body language wise she appeared relaxed after her sushi dinner the night before, as she entered the jail, knowing full well that she most likely would not be there very long.

Her nonchalant body language gives a clear message that you can chose bad behavior and it will all work out fine because of who you are.

Even if the jails are overcrowded in Los Angeles, in my view they needed to find a space especially for Lindsay to do the time. This was not her first time, her second time, her third time, or her forth time. She needed to be held accountable.

Seeing how she can get away with everything will not help her life in the long run.

Lindsay came to court with her puffy lip trout pout and arrived at the jail with her stylish high fashion makeup, complete with what looks like a double set of lashes and the latest designer clothing . It appears that is nothing but mere a PR showcase for her . There is no remorse for her continued bad and entitled.

Lindsay has been in jail five times already and she is still in her twenties. This is NOT a good sign. Unless she gets major counseling and deals with the underlying cause that stimulates her aberrant behavior ,she is headed for more of the same as she ages. Trouble will follow her forever unless he gets to the root of her troubles- her parents.

There is no question that the root of her problems have a lot to do with her parents in my view. Last week her father ended up behind bars for the sixth time. For violating a restraining order and for alleged abuse. An enabling mother and an out of control father may very well be contributors towards her acting out.

But like her dysfunctional and forgiving parents, Hollywood is also forgiving, especially if there is money to be made. It seems that money will be made with a full frontal nude photo shoot for Playboy.

It seems that those who have been able to insure her for a film also believe they will make money. But the reality of this is that if the Playboy magazines don’t sell or the films in which she appears don’t sell, there is no next time for Lindsay.

After all , in Hollywood, you are only as good as your last gig and if it doesn’t go well, neither will your career. But then there is always the “comeback” as Hollywood loves a good comeback story a la Robert Downey Jr.

While she may have “lucked out” and beat the legal system for now, in the long run as history has shown us, bad behaviors do have a way of finally catching up with people.

Even though it may be disturbing to see her skirt justice and watch her entitled body language , it may be short lived.

There must be something wrong if the courts are so overcrowded that they can't fit in someone who has such a lack of respect for the law. What's the point of even having a court hearing? It's sending a bad message and now the whole country knows that if you want to commit a crime California is the place to do it. Very sad family.

But seriously, millions of dollars for prosecutions and prisons, millions to convict the innocent to satisfy blood lust for revenge but no money for the poor, the sick or education. You get what you pay for.

Sorry to say this but the best thing that could happen to her is to overdose. She adds absolutely nothing to society and is pretty much a has been when it comes to talent.
And perhaps the voice could focus on the problems in her country because there certainly are plenty of them to focus upon.

Thank goodness we have the shining example of the USA for the world to see. A nation with no problems anywhere at all, with a rock solid financial system, with liberty and justice for all and no citizen who isn't cared for as and when needed.

Oh, wait.

Her career is done & sadly, I don't think Lohan will be long for the world.

I'll bet Leandro Andrade (Link) is very jealous. He got 50 to life for shoplifting $150 worth of video tapes from K-Marts. But then he isn't a pretty, blonde, white woman.
